Quick Breads

IMG_4624Any recipe with the name bread in it can seem intimidating but if you are in the mood to be adventurous with flavors and impress your family and friends, try a quick bread. Quick breads are just what they seem, two mixtures coming together, dry ingredients and liquid ingredients and sometimes adding an acidic element like yogurt, buttermilk or sour cream. There is no yeast, no waiting with time but so much wonderful flavor. Quick breads with coffee in the morning, served with fresh whipped cream and berries in the evening or flavored with cheese and herbs for a dinner side dish makes for a very versatile recipe and one that is used most out of my recipe box.IMG_4600IMG_4648IMG_4677
